Students choose from three majors programs of studies around their interests and aspirations; biology, cell and molecular biology, or environmental science.

Your biology courses begin with studies in plant and animal biology, genetics, and ecology, with support courses in chemistry, physics, and mathematics. After you declare your major you follow your interests, with the support of an academic advisor in your major, to choose your elective courses of study.

After graduation, students go on to work as biologists, teachers, dental and nursing assistants, environmental water quality techs and more. Others matriculate in graduate school, medical or veterinary schools.
